Hi, my name is Alana Endres, and I am so excited to be serving as a missionary for a week in South Texas this year! On an ordinary work day, you can find me in North Texas at an amazing company called Catholic Marketing Network. I started there a year ago, and it has been the best! I love that I get to help support Catholic businesses within and outside of the US. Being a part of the Catholic business world is a constant reminder that our faith truly is a Universal Faith, meant for all. It also allows me to work with some big names in the Catholic world, which is an appreciated bonus 🙂

When I’m not working, I love to hang out with my friends at concerts and country dance halls, or in my hometown with my big, loud family.

Throughout my life, I have seen the huge difference an active faith life makes, and am excited to share what I’ve learned with those in South Texas. Thanks for saying yes to this mission trip… You won’t regret it!

I am serving with a team of young adult mission leaders to run a week-long domestic mission trip to South Texas March 10-16, 2023. We serve in areas that have been affected by natural disasters and in areas of chronic poverty. I will be accompanying teens from my home parish school to help them grow their relationship with Christ as we serve Him and those in need in South Texas. We will be working a a few roofing projects with our high school crew and sharing the love of our Catholic faith with them to experience the joy of community and mission.  
Beyond the great physical work of rebuilding, our mission teams will run retreats for our mission group, opening up the door for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of those who serve with us. We start each day with Mass, give formational reflections in the evening, facilitate small group discussions, and bring the groups to adore Jesus Blessed Sacrament and to receive His mercy in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Wow! It is such an impactful week for the community we serve, the groups who come to serve with us, for us as mission leaders, and you as mission partners.
Our expected work project expenses for 2023 total approximately $100,000. My personal goal is to raise between $500-$1,000 to ensure that we have the funds necessary for building supplies, given the astronomical rise in building supply costs. I am excited to share with you my journey with God as a missionary and invite you to become one of my mission partners. “Some go to the missions, others give to the missions. Without both there are no missions.” Everything that we have is from God and everything that we give is from God. Could you contribute to covering the cost of our mission and evangelizing to teens?  Please consider joining me on mission by making a one-time or recurring donation to support the work of Catholic Mission Trips, Inc. Your prayers and financial support will bring hope and restore dignity to the families we serve. I look forward to connecting with you and experiencing mission together!
